The saga continues.... Lost some brake fluid so looked and wheel cyc leaking.....yea
Can't get drum off?  It moves but wont come off, not rust but the shoes are holding it.  Most I have doner have a rubber plug on the back.  It's drivers side.  Most have a slot in back to loosen the shoes and I see two oval holes but they are both closed with metal.  Do they punch out?  Which one do I punch out? Than what direction do I rotate the gear?
Thanks....

Yes, they punch out and you want to remove the bottom one.

The rear one needs to be removed. You turn the adjuster wheel down to loosen it (both sides, but they are opposite directions).

To anyone else reading this - wheel cylinders should be replaced preventatively. They're so cheap from Rock Auto anyway.

When the cylinder is leaking, it is no longer preventive maintenance.
